Paul Ryan: ‘We’ve Been Doing a Disservice To Our Men and Women in Military with the Budget’

‘The military has been hollowed out the last eight years’


RYAN [clip]: When I became speaker, I got access to all the classified briefings that a respect gets to see what our military has been experiencing. I’m convinced that we’ve been doing a disservice to our men and women in military with the budgets they’ve been getting. We lost seven of our troops in a helicopter crash in western Iraq. This is because of training and accidents because of our military budget. The military has been hollowed out the last eight years.
